The Buccaneers have officially hired Jason Licht as their General Manager, the club announced Tuesday evening.
Licht was the Cardinals’ vice president of player personnel in 2013. He has also held personnel/scouting positions in New England, Philadelphia, Carolina and Miami.
“Jason is a seasoned NFL personnel veteran who has worked with some of the most accomplished individuals in professional football while contributing to success in New England, Philadelphia and Arizona,” Buccaneers co-chairman Joel Glazer said of Licht, according to the club. “His strong player personnel background provides the ideal complement to Lovie Smith’s philosophy as our head coach.
“We look forward to working with Jason and Lovie as we set the foundation and chart the course for the future of Buccaneers football.”
Licht’s hiring was reported earlier Tuesday.
